  1. Hey,

    Great comment on the luxuries “Normal” people partake in that we may not be able to in a healthy way due to our adiction.

    I think there is great freedom to be found once I and we accept this.

    JA

  2. Hey Chaddo,

    I was listening to this post again today. I’m glad I did because last week I was listening to a lot of oldies in the car. Nothing to graphic or suggestive (its form the 70s and 80s). Anyhow, I found myself slipping into an addictive cycle. Upon some self examination…I reilaized this is one luxury I may not be able to do anymore. I have the Bible on Cassette or I can isten to Christian Radio. I will even listen to all th “market place” segments when they sell time on the radio because its better for me than the alternative.

  3. JA-

    You know, oldies is a perfect example of what I’m talking about. That is right on. Oldies aren’t harmful in and of themselves, but it can be destructive and harmful if it is 1) a trigger for the addict or 2) a way for the addict to escape pain.

    Believe it or not, I was talking to one addict, and I told him that some addicts should not even listen to christian music radio, because all the songs on particular stations are depressing and introspective. These songs, even though they are by “christian artists” become a destructive trigger for some addicts.

    It is more about what is happening inside our heads and how various things are making us act, react, and feel.
